Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist?
Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed.
For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?
No option for took the right amount of classes, or even took too many of this type of class. Like me, I wonder perhaps if I took too much math/science. Is that even possible?
My situation is a bit odd -- I had the "breadth" down before I attended college, 'cause I read incessantly in a variety of subjects. I took just about every course available in my chosen major, so I really couldn't do more of that. What I really wish I'd known more about was stuff that didn't really have a course....but was eminently teachable -- things like, "what production actually costs and its drivers" or "how to accomplish things [N.B. -- very similar to "project management"]."
I wish I'd taken programming classes. In my field, I encounter so many moments where being able to whip up a little program to do my stuff would be enormously helpful.
Now that I've been in the workforce for almost thirty years, I wish I could take more math/science, humanities/languages, AND useful stuff. :/
took too many classes in college, but I wish I would have taken more computer science courses instead of business focused information systems type stuff.

(Got degree in accounting, worked towards MBA in MIS later. All wasted. OJT taught me everything, college just got me the first job.)
If I knew then what I know now... less classes, more extra curricular stuff.
The liberal arts folks had lots more fun and spare time than us engineering types. They also had a lot more women to socialize with.
I was an art major that dabbed too much and ended up with a masters in art ed and minors in writing, english, and philosophy- Wish I had taken a boat more science though... that's about all I read now.
Working on a Doctorate, and have never taken a class that wasn't useful. Even if it isn't business management, it makes you a smarter, more well-rounded person, and that is always useful!
I double majored in Classics and Math, so none of the above I guess. How about more geek classes like the Physics of Superheroes or History of Rock Music fall under? I wish my school had offered those.
More CS/IT. My degree is for computer graphics...I ended up getting a job as a programmer. I wish I had a better base for that.
Majored in chemistry acs and minored in math. Very rigorous program that didn't allow me to pick my classes. You basically took all the chem and math offered and that was that. Grad school was a but of the same.
